Concert info

This concert is a part of the Art Testers, the largest cultural project directed at young people in Finnish history, and it’s only for the high school eight graders.

In this concert, UMO Jazz Orchestra will plunge into the world of film music – be prepared for iconic tunes that will make you cry, laugh and be stirred inside!

Blue Notes on Silver Screen comprises well-known and beloved score themes and nostalgic big band music from the 50’s to today. UMO will be leaded by conductor Kirmo Lintinen and the concert is hosted by blues musician Aija Puurtinen.

The programme will be composed of music from many film genres – animation to horror and hardboiled action – including numbers from such films as Anatomy of A Murder, Touch of Evil, The Pink Panther and The Incredibles. The concert will feature pieces from the repertories of Duke Ellington, Raymond Scott, Henry Mancini and Monty Norman, among others.

Jazz and cinema were born around the same time, in late 19th century, but blue notes hit the silver screen big time only in the 50s and 60s when large string orchestras were replaced by the energy of big bands. Now UMO will unleash their energy and tackle the musical treasures of film classics giving them a subtle facelift.
